Victoria is a state known for its wine. With more wine producers than any other state in the country, there’s no shortage of wine country to tour. Wine regions in Victoria are broken up by points of the compass, with some of the best wine being produced in the Yarra Valley, Heathcote and Rutherglen regions.

Yarra Valley
Perhaps the most known of Victoria’s wines come from the Yarra Valley region. Sitting to the east of Melbourne the area is known for its Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Many winery and wine tasting tours in Victoria include the Yarra Valley as their point of focus due to the regions spectacular wines and proximity to the city. The Yarra Valley is one of the best wine regions of Australia.

Heathcote
The Heathcote wine region is home to wineries who have achieved international recognition for the Shiraz they produce. Unlike other wine regions in the area, the production of wine in Heathcote is limited, resulting in an exclusivity of wines produced. Recently however newer wineries and boutique winemakers have begun business to take advantage of the ancient Cambrian soils that make the Shiraz some of the finest in the world.

Rutherglen
Australia’s largest wine producing area from the 1870’s, Rutherglen specialises in fortified wine. Experience ‘signature’ mucasts, tokays and rich red wines from winemakers in the business as a family - many of the winemakers in the region are fourth or fifth generation! There are 21 cellar doors in the region with a large variety of wines to experience.

Geelong
A special mention to the Geelong wine region in this collection of Victoria’s best. A hop, skip and half a jump from Melbourne, Geelong is not only convenient to visit from the city but it is also the gateway to the Great Ocean Road. It’s not just its tourism credentials that make this a fantastic wine region though. Geelong wines have received international recognition. Make sure to try the Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling and Viognier!
